Pushing the limit: Examining factors that affect anoxia tolerance in a single genotype of adult D. melanogaster

Abstract

Drosophila melanogaster is a promiscuous species that inhabits a large range of harsh environments including flooded habitats and varying temperature changes. To survive these environments, fruit flies have adapted mechanisms of tolerance that allow them to thrive. During exposure to anoxic stress, fruit flies and other poikilotherms enter into a reversible… (More)
